Classics Confidential: In the Shadow of Hellenistic Medicine, with Daniela Manetti

This week’s Classics Confidential  interview features Professor Daniela Manetti from the University of Florence.

Professor Manetti has published on a wide variety of ancient medical texts, but in this conversation she focuses on the intriguing papyrus fragment known as the Anonymus Londinensis, which was found in Egypt and bought by the British Library in 1889.

This text, which discusses the multiple causes of illness, is a treasure trove for ancient medical historians, but it also gives us a unique and precious insight into the processes of ancient textual composition.
